Gourmet experience in the Nice region

As well as its world-renowned salade niçoise, Nice is the only French city other than Lyon to boast its very own appellation, or designation of origin: Cuisine Niçoise!

From stuffed vegetables, courgette flower fritters, bagna cauda, estocaficada and ravioli to salade niçoise, pissaladière, pan-bagnat, pesto, ratatouille, daube stew and much, much more, all washed down with an excellent Bellet wine.
Cuisine that lets regional produce do the talking. Olive oil plays a leading role in all of the region's dishes, as do herbs such as basil, garlic, and thyme.

Whether you fancy a quick snack or a sit-down meal in a "Cuisine Nissarde"-labelled restaurant, Nice's local cuisine is synonymous with traditional, home-cooked, hearty and unpretentious food. Explore the smells and tastes of Nice!

In the midst of an exceptional region, nestled between sea and mountains

Nice lies in the heart of a fascinating region where the magical and the picturesque, the legendary and the authentic, rub shoulders. The glamour of Cannes is intertwined with the untamed wilderness of the Estérel or the mystical tranquillity of the Iles de Lérins islands. The pomp and splendour of Monte-Carlo contrast with the understated luxury of the Cap-Ferrat, the peace and quiet of Beaulieu-sur-Mer and the majestic harbour town of Villefranche.
Get away from the coast and travel back in time along the old villages trail. The narrow winding streets of Valbonne and Biot as well as the fortifications ofSaint-Paul de Vence, Roquebrune Cap Martin or Eze Village transport you straight into the heart of a medieval world. The heights of Cagnes, Vence old town, Mougins and Vallauris are evocative of the colour and light used by Renoir, Soutine, Matisse and Picasso.
